Taking this picture of the moon exposed for ~1/25 of a second at prime focus of an f/8.3 120-mm refracting telescope, I tested for the first time a custom-made remote manual shutter used to avoid camera shake and telescope vibrations created by the release of the built-in camera shutter. Unsharp mask was additionally used. Also, strong libration (9.41) is visible on the trailing limb as we can see much further east of Mare Crisium than we usually do.
